Meet the Clutter Doctor...
I believe that I am a “born organizer.” I remember delighting in organizing my mom’s recipe box and address book at a very young age! But I credit the lifestyle required by my husband’s military career (18 moves in 27 years!) with providing me with many of my skills. You can’t afford to waste time being disorganized when you’re a Naval Officer’s wife.
Previously I worked in both corporate and nonprofit settings, giving me experience in administrative and organizing roles including fundraising and development, event coordination, database management, travel planning, desktop publishing and more. I started Clutter Doctor in San Diego in 2001 as a means of combining my skills and talents with a desire for a flexible work schedule. I’ve operated my business in both CA and VA in the years since. And today I am proud to be the Vice President of the NAPO-WDC chapter!
My greatest organizing strength is being able to connect one-on-one with my clients. I learn their individual needs, background, current lifestyle and future goals so that I can effectively assist them with setting up systems that will work for them. My people skills are my strongest asset in this business.
I believe that creating order will help my clients regain physical AND emotional balance in their home and personal life. With no cookie cutter solutions, each client and each space must be considered individually. I help my clients identify and tackle their biggest problem area first, working quickly and efficiently to give them an immediate sense of satisfaction and the courage to take on the next space on their list. While taking their emotional ties to their possessions seriously, I provide unbiased, sensitive, confidential guidance, all with a dose of good humor!
In today’s world, it’s easy to get bogged down in the endless pursuit of material things and lost in a flurry of commitments. Somewhere down the road my clients’ houses stopped being their haven and keeping up with the clutter became another full-time job. My goal is to turn their house back into a home, not just a storage space! As a result of creating an ordered and efficient living and working environment, they will gain freedom to do more of the things they really enjoy doing.
I'm looking forward to meeting you!
